Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), the first openly lesbian woman to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, joined the race to become a Wisconsin senator in 2012, her campaign announced today.
If Baldwin were to win the election next year, she would be the first openly out member of the United States Senate. Baldwin, along with Colorado Congressman Jared Polis and Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, both democrats, are the currently the only out members of the U.S. House.
Baldwin was first elected to Congress in 1998 and began serving her term in 1999.
